description

Pure Vitamin C (or Ascorbic Acid) is a 3-in-1, clinically proven superstar that gives the skin environmental protection (antioxidant), boosts the skin's own collagen production and fades hyperpigmentation. This water-light formula contains 15% Vitamin C & extra antioxidants to give a healthy glow, even and firm the skin.

The disadvantage of pure Vitamin C is that it is super unstable, and hard to formulate with. This formula uses a low pH and extra antioxidants to help to stabilize Vitamin C, but even like this, C-Glow comes only with a couple of months shelf-life. 

The official shelf life of C-Glow is 6 months from production, unopened and stored in the fridge. To ensure maximum freshness, we manufacture small batches of C-Glow every week, and we store this product in the fridge in all of our warehouses. On average, by the time a C-Glow reaches our customers it is about 2-3 weeks “old”. We recommend you to store it in the fridge, too, where it keeps fresh at least for 3 months (if unopened, it keeps for a couple of months more), while it keeps about 6 weeks at room temperature. If going to the fridge every day for your C-Glow does not sound comfortable, we recommend to use this 10 ml mini bottle. You can easily decant 5-10 days worth of C-Glow into it, and store the mini bottle in the bathroom, while having the C-Glow bottle in the fridge. Click here for the C-Glow mini bottle.  

Who is it for?

Everyone looking for a light-textured, pure Vitamin C + extra antioxidants formula. However, if you have sensitive, redness-prone skin, we do not recommend C-Glow due to its low pH and high pure acid content. 
Skin Type
all skin types except for sensitive 
Skin Problem
dark spots, aging, dull and uneven skin
Texture
fast absorbing, water-like, weightless liquid

how to use it?

Apply a few drops to the face after cleansing, before using other serums and/or creams. Ideal to use in the AM, but can be applied in the PM as well. As the C-Glow formula is water-like, we recommend that you put a drop directly onto your face and quickly pat it on with your other hand.

Shelf life: 6 months from production (unopened), 3 months PAO (period after opening).

Best Vitamin C Ever

Given the quick lifespan of Vitamin C I was deeply unhappy throwing away my very expensive skinceuticals vitamin C. Then I discovered a review of G&G. I'm on my third bottle of G&G & I can safely say this is the best one I've ever used. It is the first and most fundamental step of my day and it absorbs so well. This is my favourite product in my skin routine. Thank you G&G please never change the formula!

Simply amazing

I have purchased the serum 1 month ago and it's still crystal clear. No change compared to when I first opened it, but I do keep it in the fridge. It's light weight and sinks nicely into the skin.
